Ross

I believe the answer is:

retrograde

Here is my best explanation:

'reverse' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'regret road crumbling' is the subsidiary indication.

'crumbling' indicates anagramming the letters.

'regret'+'road'='regretroad'

'regretroad' is an anagram of 'retrograde'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for retrograde that I've seen before include "Backward", "Reactionary" and "Moving backwards".)
